Sufganiyot (Israeli Jelly Donuts for Chanukah)

Anyone have a lead on a Valley bakery or market that sells these?

  1. I don't know any specifically, but your best bet is probably a kosher market or bakery. Just remember they close early on a winter Friday.

    1. re: avivale

      i would guess that Unique bakery in Tarzana has them and Cambridge Farms in North Hollywood.

    2. Continental Bakery
      12419 Burbank Blvd. Valley Village, CA

      Sam's Bakery and Doughnuts
      (818) 769-8352
      12450 Burbank Blvd

      There may be more in this area being a Jewish neighborhood.
      Have a good Chanukkah!

      1. I may get slammed for saying this, but in my lifetime of experience I have never detected the slightest difference between items labelled as sufganiyot and run-of-the-mill jelly donuts. Unless you need it to have kosher certification, any jelly donut from any seller ought to do just fine.

        1. Thanks everyone. Actually found a good supply at Victor Benes/Gelson's in Encino!

          1. Krispy Kreme is strictly kosher, and they have a special for Chanukkah
